Posted in: Lawmaker breaks taboo by handing letter about nuclear fears to emperor See in context

good move in giving the letter, the contents needed to be screamed out to him, too bad he blindly handed over the letter to his handler before reading it.

when the royal family visits Fukushima area, they are working in a political way.

those opposed to the letter given to him, are interpreting what THEY think the constitution means.

Posted in: Japan to set energy policy next week but no stance on nuclear power yet See in context

The article above mentions the ruling Democratic Party will soon have a policy about ending or trying to end nuclear power plants, but its just a policy, they made it, they can break it.

But, if we can prove that the cost for nuclear plants are too high, this will stop it. The workers to this industry are one of the costly parts, what price is paid for a life?

If more people were into knowing about the real workers in the nuclear industry they might be shocked to know who many of them are. They might be shocked to know who does the real hiring of many of the workers. Read about it, see url here. http://www.counterpunch.org/2012/09/04/nuclear-mafia-derails-democracy-in-japan/print

Its an industry and you think all industries have controls by the government, right? So, if this industry is hiring outside contractors to then hire others that hire up to 30% of the nuclear workers who have serious mental problems (but can work in some jobs) who is really the one to stop this inhuman, cost saving policy? I think the ones to stop it are the ones that are doing it. So, we can have the bank robbers catch themselves, turn themselves in and give themselves jail sentences, not going to happen.

the shoal in SouthChina Sea was not taken over, as in own it, i think they kept the their fishermen (no women i guess ) from being arrested and taken to the Philippines. < http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/travel/view/1204982/1/.html >

Last month Chinese travel agencies announced they had suspended tours to the Philippines, under government orders.

The suspension came amid a stand-off between Philippine and Chinese vessels at the shoal in the South China Sea, which is claimed by both countries.

The dispute broke out in April when Chinese government ships blocked Philippine vessels from arresting Chinese fishermen there.

Posted in: Power companies warn of summer shortages of up to 20% See in context

Why is the estimate of 16% for August and 20% for July (amount of electricity loss)

WTF, the stor above is assuming July is HOTTER than August?

that shows they are talking estimates, my estimate is go solar like Germany and China

Dr. koide estimates that Fukushima #4 might contaminate Tokyo if its weakened wall cracks and the water in the SFP (spent fuel pool) releases the 2,800 tons of (highly radioactive) spent fule rods.

true, a country with little crime, but what about crime of failing to keep records at the TEPCO meetings with the cabinet ministers about the unprecedented nuclear disaster.

NO notes about what the fnck they were doing. no audio, no videos, no cellphone photos, maybe they could get back their voice mail, but it seems they did not want to have records made.

Posted in: Can tablet computers give you a pain in the neck? See in context

i mostly use the tablet on a desk with it raised and titled a little on a baseball cap. not problems at all.

the SONY S (almost 10 in.) is very light, just go to any Joshin or similar computer store and pick it up.

i think about it if you are going to get a table to use as your PC, then 10in. is best.

those smaller size screens make the file names so small, hard to move files around and for watching video files.

i think the 7 or 8in. tablets might be great for listening to music and audio ebooks, maybe reading if you make the font size up and reading webpages would be ok, just pinch to zoom. but if you want to use your tablet as your PC, get 10. i have read that Samsung is making a 13in. tablet for next year, cool.

i got my AU Motorola XOOM the day it went on sale on April 9, 2011 and after a hard few months of leaving the world of Windows7 and learning to use Android 3.0 (now i have 3.2) my Android 3 tablet is my main PC.

the only time i turn on my Win7 PC is to move the stuff from the tablet to the PC to burn data DVDs. i use the PC to make prints of the .docx text i wrote on the tablet and i use the PC to enter text to webpage based forms, like the college syllabus, the browsers running on Android will not work for that.

Posted in: Android grabs more tablet market share: survey See in context

Ted

note, i think, the great Samsung 10 tablet does not have an SD card. for me, that is a deal breaker. i used to move files from my XOOM to my PC with a microUSB-B cable, but when transferring 100s of text or PDF files, some did not get to the PC, i dont trust transfer by cable. also, transfer by wireless LAN was too slow. i just take out the SD card and put it into the PC.

we are talking Android 3 and 4, if you install the free Dolphin HD browser, flash graphics and embedded videos work well. if people use the "stock browser" that comes with Android 3, it too does flash.

if you install MX video player, any video or audio file can be seen or heard, no need to get into the time wasting process of re-encoding into a native video format.

also, PowerAmp plays any video or audio file as sound only, but its the only Android app that has an equalizer, a tablet playing audio can sound really great. you really shouls also get a good blutooth headphones, Creative has a good one for 8,000yen, cut the wires out and listening with the tablet in your bag is nice and the super clear signal works in all rooms in an apt.

speaking of flash, there is Tube Mate, it will download the. mp4 or. flv flash videos on YouTube.

my XOOM can really do a lot, i dont turn on my Win7 desktop that much anymore, well, i move stuff from the microSD card into the Win7 PC, then use the PC to burn data DVDs.

yes, Carcharodon that Ausu T. PRIME is really good, but read about it on the Android forums, first.so or many people are pissed that it has antenna problems, Ausu has tried to fix this with an update, but users are not happy. from some of my reading, it is the full metal body case, no plastic frame that cuts off the WiFi 802.11n signal.

i have the Motorola XOOM for the past year, its great, my main PC now. you know, if anyone just wants a good tablet, get the SONY S, its about 40,000yen at Joshin and really has the same good things that the AU Motorola XOOM has.

did you all read that, people that are thinking of atablet?a tablet is great, you do more reading and listening to books and music.

the SONY S has a less powerful CPU than the Asus T. Prime, but its as good as the XOOM, they both have the same good points, like microSD slot, HDMI to TV or projector/monitor, big screen, microUSB, Honeycomb 3.2 and will be updated very soon, so SONY said last week.

but, if you want a more powerful CPU, able to play 720p and 1080p video files, maybe the Asus T. Prime is the one, that is what i want, might, that is, have to see about the WiFi problem.

you know, i dont see any reason to play any video file that area over 450p, that size looks soooooo good on the XOOM.

Posted in: TEPCO to hold bids for 17 million smart meters See in context

I don't think there will be many mid aged housewifesthat would want to visit the are north and north west of Fukushima to collect to TEPCO electric meter numbers. putting it on auto takes away what some see as a dangerous p/t job.

I read this in this inTerrie's Take 646, see text below.

T E R R I E 'S T A K E * A weekly roundup of news & information from Terrie Lloyd. (http://www.terrie.com)

General Edition Sunday, January 22, 2012, Issue No. 646

*Ed: This move could have been made 10 years ago -- that's how long this technology has been available. But we suspect it was in TEPCO's best interest to keep power charges somewhat obfuscated. Still, better late than never. Also interesting to see that they are opening the bidding up to foreign companies as well.****

this ebook thing could be great for teachers, they sell their books to their college students.

i have an AU Android Xoom 10inch "XOOM" tablet, it is my main computer, it does everything Win7csn do. well, there is no data dvd burning and no printing, but i plug it into my LCD projectorwith the micro HDMI cable, use the mini stereo plug to external speakersin class.

the screen rez of the Android tablets are just a little better, but who cares.everyone shouldget a tablet, super great for reading and listening to ebooks, etc. viewing flash videos using the Dolphin HD works well,and we csn save webpages as PDF files.
